Moving is a way of life for service members and their families. Resources like MilitaryINSTALLATIONS, Plan My Move and Military OneSource provide important information to help make moving easier. For many newcomers, a sponsor can help add that personal touch.
A sponsor is assigned by a newcomer's gaining unit and helps the newcomer before, during and after a move. If you haven't been assigned a sponsor, you can request one through your new unit. Units try to match sponsors and service members by rank and family status.
To help prepare sponsors for success, the Sponsorship Program provides training and access to important information and resources that can help newcomers master their move. The Sponsorship Program helps sponsors fulfill their responsibilities, which may include:

For more information on the Sponsorship Program, contact your installation Military and Family Support Center.
Sponsorship is also available for youth. Installation youth sponsorship programs help military-connected youth make a successful transition to a new community. Primarily directed to preteen and teenaged youth, installation youth programs/centers provide information and materials on programs and services available at their new location. Where available, youth can exchange emails, talk on the phone or chat online with other youth. The youth program staff at your new installation can offer more information on installation youth sponsorship programs.
You can also contact your installation School Liaison Program office for information about school-based youth sponsorship programs such as Anchored4Life and Student2Student. These peer-to-peer programs help your student adjust to and navigate their new school.
If your child would like to become a youth sponsor, contact your installation School Liaison Program or youth program/center.
Families with children may also want to visit Military Kids Connect, an online community for military children and youth. The site offers games, videos and links to teen-led installation tours.
Welcome to U.S. Army Recruiting, Central California! We are thrilled that you will be part of our team.
Our team is committed to the tenets of the Total Army Sponsorship Program.
In addition to your sponsor, you may contact your Soldier and Family Assistance Program Manager. Your SFA can provide a variety of relocation readiness services such as pre-move, post-move, housing, school and local community information. We recommend that new recruiters and family members also utilize the Plan My Move website. Military One Source also has a ton of relocation resources.
Once your new company or station has been established, your sponsor will be assigned to you and you will receive an email notification from the Army Career Tracker website with your sponsor's information. When practical, the sponsor assigned to you will be in a grade equal to or higher than you. The sponsor will be of the same gender and marital status, when possible.
Communication with your sponsor is the key to success. Our intent is to make you feel welcome and provide you current information about your new home. Please identify any special needs such as Exceptional Family Member Program or circumstances that may be important to note.
Your sponsor will also accompany you to your in-processing appointment at the Battalion Headquarters at Naval Air Station Lemoore to complete your checklist. In-processing occurs on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9 a.m.
